Year 11 Options

Now that you’re in Year 11, it is  time to start thinking about what you want to do after you leave Debenham High School.

What you can do after Year 11 depends on things like what kind of grades you’re going to get, what you are interested in and what type of place you want to learn in. You can choose a  school sixth form which will probably feel a bit more like what you are used to or a college where there won't be any Year 7s about the place. You also have the choice to take an apprenticeship at 16 (or may may consider one after you have completed sixth form/college when you are 18).

Then there is the difficult decision as to what to study - if you are thinking of university then some courses will specify what A Levels/BTECs you will need to gain. Having a specific career, university degree etc in mind can help form decisions but if not do not worry and choose subjects that will help keep your options open. Here are a few sites that go into more detail about what options are available and also how to choose options that lead to certain paths.

Informed Choices

What you study at sixth form or college can affect your options at university and your future career. Use Informed Choices to help you understand which subjects open up different degrees, particularly at Russell Group universities.

UCAS Facts about A Levels

Advanced level qualifications (known as A levels) are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. You can normally study three or more A levels over two years

If you’re not sure what career or job you want to do, studying a selection of A levels can be a good way of keeping your options open.

BTEC Diplomas

BTECs are designed for young people interested in a particular sector or industry but who are not yet sure what job they’d like to do.

You could study a BTEC at Level 2 or 3, either alongside academic qualifications or as part of a wider programme (such as an apprenticeship). You can also study a BTEC as a standalone course.

New T Levels

T Levels are new two-year courses equivalent to three A levels, which will be available to students in England from September 2020. At the moment the offer in Suffolk is very limited.

T Levels are based on the same standards as apprenticeships, designed by employers, and will offer around 1,800 hours of study over two years. This will include a 45-day work placement, so T Levels will be more suited to students who know what occupation or industry they want to move into.
